I checked with speedway motors about the shifter and they said it was for a powerglide trans. How is it working for you?

Well took it to Rocks and Valleys today and the 42's were no issue, just have to get used to how wide they are. Did blow a seal in the gear box, but a trip to the auto parts store and fixed on the trailer in the 10 min downpour we got and she was good as new. Very happy! Thanks to all that helped!

I had them about 10 psi. They are def a bit wider, that took a little getting used to. As far as performance, places that I struggled to get thru with the MTR's were a non issue. Im impressed so far

Tread being the difference or possibly being in a bigger tire giving you better clearance?

The mechanic at the car fixer place told me that it looked like I blew a seal but it was really just some ice cream on my chin. So embarrased.

Im gonna say both but more the tread pattern, the MTR's totally suck in sand and get loaded up quickly. The pitbulls didnt........that made a big difference in a couple places on Python

stop screwing with that steering box already and put some hydro on that thing. all the money you have put into steering boxes you could of almost bought a full hydro kit.

get a tsc se ram like john just did, you already have hi steer arms so you can weld mounts to the tie rod,get a orbital and some lines and you need 1 fitting to screw into the stock pump.done.
so 100 for ram, 180.00 for lines,12 bucks for the fitting and find a used orbital from someone.
